Adventurers' Club Honolulu Meetings Sep - Dec 2018

 THE ADVENTURERS' CLUB 
     OF HONOLULU
Newsletter:  Sept to Dec, 2018 
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
           Greetings fellow Adventurers!
   As I write this I'm in Paris at the end of an extended summer trip to Europe, enjoying many new cities and sights and experiences. Among them was a cruise to Scotland, the Faroe Islands and Iceland and visits to Leipzig and Wismar in Germany, and Ghent and Bruge in Belgium. But as Dorothy said in the Wizard of Oz, "There's no place like home" and I'll be back shortly.
   We have another round of excellent and varied evening programs, plus a special new adventure, and I hope to see you all at them!
   Aloha, Lowell Angell, President

NEW DINING ADVENTURE FOR ALL MEMBERS – ALA WAI GOLF COURSE RESTAURANT
      We have found a good venue to try for our Nov. 15, 2018 dinner when Bill Chapman will present his new book on “Ancient Sites of Southeast Asia”. The Arnemanns and Simons met Sunday evening, Aug. 12 with owner/chef at Ala Wai Golf Course Restaurant. We sampled 3 of the 4 combination plates she suggested. It is delicious food and prices are very reasonable.
     Check the November 15 dinner menu in this newsletter and you will see the various options with prices. The view is expansive with large windows overlooking the golf course. They can accommodate up to 50 diners near the windows in the mauka section of the dining room, separated by potted plants.
     There is plenty of free parking and it is a convenient location with access from Kapahulu Ave. Drive makai towards ocean, turn right into street just before the Waikiki Public Library and drive ¼ mile to golf course building on the right. If you are on target the Ala Wai Canal will be on your left.         To google directions the address is 404 Kapahulu Ave. We will give more detailed directions in the November reminder email. The owner is very willing to please, wants us to be satisfied and assured us they can serve food hot and very quickly. Be one of the first to experience this exciting new venue in November 15!    Put on your calendar to book it November 1.

  “Sketching on the Move”      By member Simon Bussiere
As Simon explains: “It's a blast to travel and explore, but it can be difficult to pause for long enough to take in the character of a place. “ For Simon—a landscape architect and designer—sketching is a way to slow down. As he explains, “I find it to be a great way of learning to see and better understand the intrinsic qualities of a place.” Simon draws regularly when he travels, “and occasionally the drawings even come out ok”, he explains. Simon will share his process from recent trips through Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the US and talk about how travelers can integrate this practice into their next adventure!

“Tasmania or Bust: A Six-Month Trip from California to the Far Pacific”      By guest Bill Leary
Kaneohe resident Bill Leary helped owner/skipper Rob Vaughan sail Van Diemen III, a 64‘ custom built wooden sloop, from Newport Beach, CA to Hobart, Tasmania for 6 months in 2017, a voyage exceeding 10,000 nautical miles. This was an extraordinary deep-water voyage with many fascinating ports of call, including the Marquesas, Tuamotus, Society Islands, Niue, Tonga, Fiji, New Caledonia, Norfolk, and Lord Howe Island. Follow the track of the Van Diemen III through the South Seas and see Tasmania, the land that time has forgotten and said by many to be the most beautiful island in the world. Bill has spoken to us a few times in the past, including February 21, 2013, about his cruising experiences in the South Pacific and Hawaii aboard his 35 foot sailboat Moku pe'a".

“The Great Barrier Reef is Still Great”

By guest Susan Scott
A recent headline announced that “97 percent of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is Dead,” a statement based on studies of sections of the reef. For the last three years, however, Susan has been intermittently sailing the Great Barrier Reef on her sailboat, Honu, and found it very much alive. She will talk about the science and politics in Australia regarding its world heritage reef as she shows photos of the extraordinary marine life she has encountered. A former registered nurse, Susan earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from the UH and is a graduate of the University’s Marine Option Program. She has written a weekly column, “Ocean Watch,” for the Honolulu Star-Advertiser since 1987, and has written nine books about nature in Hawai`i.

IMPORTANT MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION:
**CORRECTION** We GOOFED in the meeting reminder sent in November! THE SPOUSE/PARTNER MEMBERSHIP REMAINS AT $20 FOR A SPOUSE/PARTNER OF A CURRENT FULL MEMBER. We apologize for any
confusion!
The good news is that there will be NO INCREASE in dues for next year!
It remains at $37.50 for a Full Membership and $20 for the Spouse/Partner of a Full member.

Beginning in January, however, we will be charging a $5 guest fee for a NON-MEMBER spouse/partner, and all other non-members, (in addition to the price of the dinner).  This is to help defray the Club’s overhead expenses including facility and equipment rental. These expenses are already incorporated into the dues of Club members.
As an incentive to encourage a NON-MEMBER spouse/partner to join the Club, the $25 initiation fee will be WAIVED through January 31, 2018. By joining as a Spouse/Partner or Full member, they will avoid paying the $5 guest fee, which could add up to $60 over the course of the year.
New member applications will be presented and voted on at the next Board of Directors meeting on January 11. If you wish to take advantage of this SPECIAL LIMITED OFFER, please send your application to Janet by January 5, together with the appropriate membership fee ($20 or $37.50).

“The Intracoastal Waterway: America's Little-Known Treasure" By Member Ed Carus
Ed Carus

Most non-sailors west of the Mississippi River have never heard of the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) or know very little about it. Ed believes it is one of our nation's unique national treasures. He has motored through parts of the east coast section of the waterway twice in the past 70 years. It may not be an exotic area of the world, but it is a very interesting and historic part of the country's heritage. Ed will be sharing his photographs and insights into this important cultural and natural resource.

Machu Picchu, located at an elevation of nearly 8,000 feet above sea level, was home to the famous Inca rulers of modern-day Peru. Dating from the 15th century, the impressive archaeological ruin was rediscovered by Hiram Bingham III, grandson of the Reverend Hiram Bingham of Hawaii. The Galapagos Islands, off the coat of Ecuador, are famous for their many unique species and also as the focus of Charles Darwin’s observations during the second voyage of the HMS Beagle.

"A Tour of Europe's Fortifications: Remains of World Wars I and II" By Guest Kepa Lyman

Kailikepaokamoana “Kepa” Lyman will discuss his recent trip to Europe to study fortifications from World Wars I and II.    His journey took him to Hitler’s Atlantic Wall, France’s “impregnable” Maginot Line, and Mussolini’s Alpine Defenses.  France and Italy are the main focus of his presentation. The descendant of Rufus Lyman of Hilo, son of missionary David Lyman, Kepa has a BA from Whitman College in Washington and an MA and two graduate certificates from the University of Hawai‘i. He also holds a degree in underwater archaeology from the University of Sussex in England. He is especially interested in World War II sites in the Pacific and this, along with a year in Berlin, fueled his interests in military fortifications worldwide.
